Laser Assisted Hatching

Laser Assisted Hatching (LAH)

Assisted hatching is technique used to help the embryo hatch from its protective outer shell, the zona pellucida, and promote implantation in the uterine wall after embryo transfer.
LAH is often required for older women seeking assisted reproductive interventions because the egg covering becomes thicker with age. However, it is a handy technique for women with history of repeated IVF failures or those using cryopreserved embryos among others.
